RoHS / Legislation

Understanding RoHS and getting certificates

Where a product is flagged as RoHS Compliant or where the RoHS Compliant icon is used, this means that, based on information provided by our suppliers, the product does not contain the substances prohibited by the European Community Directive (2011/65/EU) on the Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances, commonly known as the RoHS Directive, at levels in excess of the anticipated maximum concentration values.

Member states of the European Community are required to implement the RoHS Directive into their national law. As not all member states have done so at the date of this posting, the foregoing represents our understanding of how the RoHS Directive is likely to be implemented. The information contained in this website supersedes the information contained in any printed catalog or other publication.

Newark element14's policy is only to designate a product as RoHS compliant when we are confident that the product is fully compliant.

No RoHS Designation

Products that are outside the scope of the RoHS legislation and products for which we do not have enough information from our suppliers to confidently confirm their RoHS compliance status have no designation on our web site. Customers that wish to purchase a RoHS compliant version of any product that is not designated as RoHS compliant YES or YesX should contact Live Technical Support or check available alternatives on our web site as we may be able to provide a suitable product from our extensive range.
